View Quote Beast: I let her go.
Cogsworth: [chuckles] Yes. Yes. Splen- [realizes what the Beast just said] You what? How could you do that?
Beast: I had to.
Cogsworth: Yes, b-b-but... why?
Beast: Because... I love her.
View Quote Gaston: [flipping through the pages of Belle's book] How can you read this? There's no pictures!
Belle: Well, some people use their imagination.
Gaston: [tossing the book aside] Belle, it's about time you got your head out of those books and paid attention to more important things. Like me.
[the Bimbettes sigh at Gaston]
Gaston: The whole town's talking about it. It's not right for a woman to read. Soon she starts getting "ideas" and "thinking"-
Belle: Gaston, you are positively primeval.
Gaston: Why, thank you, Belle!
[Belle raises her eyebrows in surprise]
View Quote [Belle nurses the Beast's wounds in the den after the fight with the wolves; she dips a rag into a small dish of hot water poured by Mrs. Potts]
Belle: Here now. [the Beast is licking his wounds] Don't do that. [trying to clean his wounds with the rag] Just hold still.
[she applies the rag to the wound, but the Beast jumps back and roars in pain; the objects, who are close by, hide in fear]
Beast: That hurts!
Belle: If you'd hold still, it wouldn't hurt as much!
Beast: If you hadn't run away, this wouldn't have happened.
Belle: If you hadn't frightened me, I wouldn't have run away!
Beast: Well, you shouldn't have been in the West Wing!
Belle: Well, you should learn to control your temper. [the Beast tries to counterpoint, but can't think of anything good; so he bows his head annoyed; the objects re-emerge] Now, hold still. This might sting a little. [applies the rag to the wound; though the Beast winces, he doesn't pull back this time] By the way, thank you for saving my life.
Beast: You're welcome.
View Quote [Gaston meets with Monsieur D'Arque, the owner of the insane asylum to at his tavern]
Monsieur D'Arque: I don't usually leave the asylum in the middle of the night, but he said you'd make it worth my while. [Gaston presents him with a bag of money] Ah, I'm listening.
Gaston: It's like this: I've got my heart set on marrying Belle. But she needs a little... persuasion.
Lefou: [chuckles] Turned him down flat! [Gaston hits him]
Gaston: Everyone knows her father's a lunatic! He was in here tonight, raving about a "Beast" in a "Castle"!
Monsieur D'Arque: Maurice is harmless.
Gaston: The point is, Belle would do anything to keep him from being locked up.
Lefou: Yeah, even marry him! [points at Gaston; ducks when Gaston tries to hit him again]
Monsieur D'Arque: So you want me to throw her father into the asylum unless she agrees to marry you? [Lefou nods eagerly] Oh, that is despicable. [chuckling evilly] I love it!
View Quote [last lines]
Chip: Are they gonna live happily ever after, Mama?
Mrs. Potts: Of course, my dear. Of course.
Chip: [pause] Do I still have to sleep in the cupboard?

View Quote [The Beast and Gaston are fighting on top of the castle; the Beast strikes at Gaston, grabs him and holds him over the edge]
Gaston: Let me go! Let me go! Please... don't hurt me!! I'll do anything, ANYTHING!!! [the Beast glares with fury, then his anger slowly melts as he realizes that he's sinking to Gaston's level. He pulls Gaston back in and close to his face]
Beast: [in a calm, but angry manner] Get out.
View Quote [The Beast catches Belle in the West Wing]
Beast: Why did you come here?
Belle: I'm sorry.
Beast: I warned you never to come here!
Belle: I didn't mean any harm.
Beast: [now completely furious] Do you realize what you could have done?! [smashes a table out of anger]
Belle: Please... Stop! No!
Beast: [yelling] Get out! [smashes more objects as Belle runs out in absolute terror] GET OUT! [finally calming down, he looks dismayed at his own behavior]
[Belle immediately grabs her cloak, puts it on, and runs out of the castle; with Cogsworth and Lumiere close behind]
Lumiere: Where are you going?
Belle: Promise or no promise, I can't stay here another minute.
Cogsworth: Oh no, wait! Please! Please, wait!
View Quote [The Beast lays dying with Belle at his side; meanwhile, the rose is down to its last petal]
Beast: You... you came back.
Belle: Of course I came back. I couldn't let them.... [hugs the Beast] Oh, this is all my fault. If only I'd gotten here sooner...
Beast: Maybe it's better... it's better this way.
Belle: Don't talk like that. You'll be all right. We're together now. Everything's going to be fine. You'll see.
[knowing better, the Beast reaches up and touches Belle's cheek]
Beast: At least... I got to see you.... one last time.
[his paw falls and his eyes close]
Belle: No. No! Please! Please! Please don't leave me! [Sobs] I love you.
[the last petal falls away, leaving Cogsworth, Lumiere, and Mrs. Potts distraught; suddenly, a magical shower falls around the Beast and Belle, and the Beast rises into the air, turning into a human prince; then he lands on the ground and when he gets up, he turns toward Belle]
Prince Adam: Belle... it's me.
Belle: [she looks into his eyes and recognizes him] It is you!
